I was just curious if anyone has had to retake a class like Calc 1 and still was able to get interviews and even get into a med school? I just finished my semester and did well in all my other classes which were sciences but there is now way I passed Calc. It has me nervous that its going to make it even more difficut than it already is to get in somewhere.

I'm right here with you! Tear down their iron tower of oppression!

I got a C in calc, myself. I don't think med school are going to be like, "This scrub can't do calculus! We need people to design our hospital starship and he/she can't cut it!" Hospital starships aren't real, so it's not that big of a deal. Most schools don't even require calculus.

It's like any other class. If you get like a D or an F, you should retake it. A C is ok.

Wait....hospital starships aren't real!? Erroneous! I refuse to believe you. This is actually a huge relief to hear. I live in CT so I will be applying primarily in New England and I know most of the schools around here do want to see calculus on your transcript. Im just hoping that a retake isnt gonna hurt me. Thanks for the responses
